{ shamefully indulgent breakfast }

This delectable dish was on our Christmas morning breakfast menu a few weeks ago. 

It was so, so very, very good (yes, this statement requires its own paragraph).

And that's really all I have to say about it, as mere words don't seem like a fair fight when describing something so yummy.

Except for the fact that I still think about it ... late at night ... when I have the munchies. Oh, and during the daylight hours too ... so, yeah, pretty much whenever.

Scrumptious, chewy, sweet goodness.

You. Must. Make. This.

Sticky Buns Breakfast Ring
(adapted from All Things Delicious)

2 tubes refrigerator buttermilk biscuits (don't use Grands -- they're too big and mess up the cooking time)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Coat the inside of a bundt cake pan with non-stick spray. Combine the melted butter and syrup in a small bowl and set aside. In another bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon.
Pour about half of the syrup mixture in the bottom of the pan and sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture on top.

Arrange the biscuits on a slant/diagonal around the bottom of the pan, overlapping edges to form a ring.

Top biscuit ring with remaining syrup and sugar mixtures.

Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden brown (mine took about a half hour, so just keep a close eye on it).

Cool for 1 minute in the pan, then invert onto a serving platter.

Make yourself a second mimosa and thank me. :)

Not to be picky, but this was actually on our Boxing Day breakfast menu (chilaquiles on Christmas day).
It was indeed decadent.
Want some now.

Hmmmm ... you're correct. I guess the memory was so good, it's beginning to take over other days. Oh well, semantics.
